Im trying to complete the upload of my winodws 7 enterprise image capture. the image capture has worked.
the windows7.wim file  captured from C and placed on D (the image capture roughly around 5.4 GB).
the issue occurs trying to upload the captured image from D drive up to the WDS server.
error message In the middle of the process of the uploading the image captured it tells me "There is not enough space on the disk" (the WDS server)

I have checked over the WDS on there is 41GB free in order to place the 5.4GB wim file.
any advice or fix for this please?

Hi,

when the message appears do a Shift+F10 and verify the volumes space using the terminal, and you should see if a drive is out of space.

Hi felix
I have checked to see if the drive is out of space but there is over 40GB free.
I have checked the permissions of the folder the .wim file needs to upload to where the image is captured and grant it for everyone to have full access.
any advice ?

Ok the Image is sealed with sysprep first

System is rebooted choosing a capture Image from wds

you select where to save the wim (C:\) and where to upload it (select a WDS Server and WDS Group etc. )

and when it start to prepare the Image and starts to upload to WDS-Server it stops with the error ?

typed on the cmd line:
wpeutil initializenetwork
(to get an IP address working)

it appears the the issue has come back with the same error message

 "There is not enough space on the disk".
I have managed one build to upload on to the WDS
the work around tried last time was adding the "anonymous" user permission to the "remote install" folder in WDS  .

The image that has been uploaded to WDS has since been deployed also. The machine that has received the windows 7 image from WDS has had more applications added and then syspreped.

When the syspreped machine has been captured (F12 Nic card)
the image appears to fail on the upload to the WDS  with the usual error
 "There is not enough space on the disk".  (usually fails at the 35% mark)
the image size is 6.5 GB
the WDS has over 35 GB of space

the image captures to a USB drive without an issue.

is there any advice on this
